Walk this world alone try to stay on my feet
 Sometimes crawl, fall, but I stand up cause I'm afraid to sleep And open my eyes to a new day, with all new problems 4. and all new pain
All the faces are filled with so much anger Losing our dignity and hope from fear of danger After all the wars, after settling the scores, at the break of dawn we will be deaf to the answers 
There's so much bigotry, misunderstanding and fear
With eyes squinted and fists clinched we reach out for what is dear
We want it we want
We want a reason to live

We're on a pilgrimage A crusade for hope
'Cause in our hearts and minds and souls we know
We need it we need
We need more than this
 Going through this life looking for angels People passing by looking for angels  Walking down the streets looking for angels Everyone I meet looking for angels 
So many nations with so many hungry people
So many homeless scrounging around for dirty needles
On the rise, teen suicide, when we will realize We've been desensitized by the lies of the world 
We're oppressed and impressed by the greedy Whose hands squeeze the life out of the needy When will we learn that wars, threats,
And regrets are the cause and effect of living in fear

Who can help protect the innocence of our children Stolen on the internet with images they can't forget We want it we want
We want a reason to live

We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation To let love be our light and salvation We need it we need

We need more than this
I became a savior to some kids I'll never meet
Sent a check in the mail to buy them something to eat
What will you do to make a difference, to make a change?

What will you do to help someone along the way?
Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek
Pray for your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me
In the midst of the most painful faces Angels show up in the strangest of places
